back now with more of "today" on this monday morning, july 18th, 2011. it is a great morning here in rockefeller plaza. these nice people are stretching out their weekend for one more day, and we're very glad that they did. and boy, this temperature is kind of nice out here. >> for now. and we're stand nth shade. >> but right now, it's perfect with a nice breeze going. i'm ann curry along with lester holt in for matt. and the big question is, where is casey anthony? >> a good question. a lot of cameras when she was released early sunday morning.
9:01 am
but she hasn't been seen since, which may be a good idea for now, since her lawyers say she has been receiving death threats since the not guilty verdict. we'll have the latest in a live report, coming up. and on a different topic, with this economy and people struggling to make ends meet, we've got some tips for you to get the best deals out there. prices up across the board with everything from food to technology to travel. the cost of a plane ticket has gone up 15% the last year. so we're going to show you how you can cut your bills, and find the best deals. >> relike that segment. okay and savannah. >> do we all remember show and tell from school? >> of course. >> this week, natalie and i are going to have some fun. we're all teaching each other a skill. and al noticed i could use some help in the cooking department, so here he is trying to teach me how to barbecue. >> i'm sure you did a good job. >> he did a great job. >> fantastic teacher. >> she only got a major -- one major burn on her. >> all right. well, we'll look forward to all of that. but first, let's get a check of
9:02 am
the news with natalie at the news desk. >> good morning, everyone. it's a scorcher today in the nation's mid section, and dangerous temperatures aren't going to let up any time soon. 17 states from texas to michigan are under heat advisories and warnings, coping with high humidity and triple digit temperatures. british prime minister david cameron called for an emergency session of parliament to brief lawmakers on the bribing scandal. and this morning a attorney for rebekah brooks, former editor of "news of the world" arrested over the weekend said she is not guilty of any criminal offense. casey anthony is a free woman today, as you heard. but her whereabouts are unknown. nbc's kerry sanders has the latest now from orlando. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, natalie. after solitary in a cell for three years, in one day, casey anthony, sunday morning, walked out the front door, climbed into an suv, was pursued for a short
9:03 am
time by news helicopters, and then casey anthony vanished. flanked by her attorney, casey anthony, wearing a bright pink shirt, skinny jeans and sneakers, mouthed a simple thank you to one of the officers in the jail and within 15 seconds, she was out the front door. amid protesters' cat calls, casey made her way to an avoiding suv, where she flashed a slim smile, and then she and her crews sped off. some of those who gathered here still angry at her acquittal gave chase on foot. while from above news helicopters followed the gray suburban. >> get out of the way. we must clear it. >> reporter: deputies had blocked off access, giving casey a secure route to escape the community's anger. >> she is not worth the time of day. after tonight, she is dead in my room. she is gone.
9:04 am
. >> reporter: the unusually high level of security, including mounted patrols, was put in place after casey's lawyers said she had received repeated death threats. the gray suburban escape vehicle, unlike that other famous chase of the white bronco on california's 405, gave airborne cameramen the slip among the buildings in downtown orlando. it's believed casey went to her attorney's office, but for a while it appeared the suv had driven on to the tarmac at a city airport, where a private jet took off. faa records show the plane went to columbus, ohio. but there's no passenger manifest to reveal if casey was on board. where did casey go? her attorneys won't say, her brother won't say. her parents won't say. >> we're out here for caylee. >> reporter: on sunday, people gathered here where caylee's remains were found. all with a shared sense of anguish. >> i just keep thinking about
9:05 am
little caylee and how sad that her sweet little life -- she wasn't even 3 years old, and this is what she had to go through. and it just breaks my heart. i just wanted to honor this little girl's memory. >> reporter: cindy anthony is casey's mother. when she was watching on tv those early-morning efforts at the airport, she texased jose baez, which is casey's defense attorney. and according to cindy's attorney, she got back an answer, which was just "she's safe." simply, "safe." and so cindy doesn't know where her daughter went. what we do know this morning is that she is free, she is left, and her whereabouts are unknown. natalie? >> all right, kerry sanders in orlando, florida. thank you, kerry. today is the united nation's nelson mandela day, honoring the former south african president
9:06 am
on his birthday. president obama says mandela is a beacon for the global community. the boy wizard conjured up a record-breaking weekend at the box office. "harry potter and the deathly ha hallows part 2" took in $168.6 million nationwide. "transformers" second and "horrible bosses" third. you're up to date right now. let's go back outside to lester, ann and savannah. >> thank you, natalie. i was thinking about savannah and we're talking about the weather now, aren't we now? >> we are. >> talking about the weather. i know, i've lost my mind. i had this -- i was thinking about horrible -- >> what did you just say? >> i said ta-tas on the air. >> we're pretty much going everywhere today, al. >> twice. from the justin timberlake/mila kunis interview -- where are you from? >> charleston, south carolina.
9:07 am
>> whose birthday? >> mine. >> happy birthday! >> thank you. >> what's your name? >> memo emily. >> happy birthday. >> thank you. let's check the weather while we try and put ann back together. a big area of high pressure dominating and no end in sight. we have heat watches and advisories across 16 states. high temperatures stretching almost coast to coast, into the 90s. as we zoom in, show you where this hot, humid weather is. minneapolis today, 98, 96 in st. louis. 102 in oklahoma city. factor in the humidity, 107 it feels like in chicago. feels like 114 in des moines, 105. in minneapolis, 112. this is dangerous weather. and the big problem is, the overnight lows will only drop back into the upper 70s, low to mid 80s. so those temperatures then bounce up even higher, each day as we go along during this week. that's what's going on around the country. here's what'tr
9:08 am
>> the heat is on as we go back into the work week. upper eighties to mid 90's. in a lot more you might as well. hott got a birthday girl here, what's your name? >> novela. >> happy birthday. is this your sister? oh, there you go. a lot like our director. wet and wants a bottle. all right, natalie? >> all right, al, thank you. this morning on "today's consumer," how to find the best deals on everything from food to travel to technology. elizabeth benef elizabeth benner is here with savvy vagus to helpfully save
9:09 am
big bucks. good morning. >> good morning. >> it seems like everything is going up in price these days. what's contributing to that? >> a lot of factors, bad harves harvests, crops not doing well, which effects the price of meat and t-shirts and jeans. >> so everything is driving the price up. so is you've got ways to help us cut down on the costs, starting with foods. and "money" magazine says divide and conquer. >> some people think costco is going to have the best price. but actually where costco is best in is sea foods and meats. >> yes, i know. i buy that all of the time. >> and you want produce, go to a farmer's market, find one at and go at the end of the day when they're discounting prices. >> good idea. >> and canned foods and cereals, dollar stores have the best prices. and for gourmet food, lots of flash sales. like guilt group has flash sales on clothing. >> and guilt taste. >> and you can get that there. >> okay. so look for those flash sales, well. and the next is travel.
9:10 am
and there are a lot of websites out there that always have the best deals when it comes to booking your hotel rooms or booking flights. so what are some of the best places to go when it comes to finding the deals to get away? >> some people don't realize that at, let's say you want to go between new york and chicago and you want to spent less than $250. you can put an alert and they'll scan prices and whenever it drops below that point, you get pinged so you know that's the time to buy. >> do you have to be flexible? you've got to be able to go whenever you get those pings, right? >> that will keep the price down that way. >> okay. but if you're going with a family, what are some other ways you can save? >> one way you can keep the price on accommodations down, go to, another short-term online sale, and you can get luxury properties at 50% off. >> okay, sneak spelled uniquely there as you see. and you'll find alternative getaways, as well. different destinations. >> >> yes, basically if you want a beach get away in europe but can't

afford italy, they'll say try croatia. >> next-best thing. tech items can get pricey, as well. and figuring out when to buy can save you a lot of money. when is best? >> right. in general after thanksgiving. if you're looking for tvs in particular, wait until after the super bowl, that's when they all go on sale. >> of course. >> and if you're looking for a laptop, next month before back to school season is the time to do it. cheapest. >> good to know. and also, if you're not meeting that new technology right away, you can always buy last-year's model at a discount, right? >> yes, that's a great idea. great tip. >> and neck next is buying a new car. you've got great ways to find the best price, as well. >> first, figure out what car is worth it to you. so go to, and and

yeah, it was weird to have both of those things happening in the same year. bus normally you would think, what's worse than this, having two kind of twin tragedies together? but i think the weird thing about grief is, if you have two big things happening at the same time, i think you really do have a finite amount of grief to go around. you can only give so much to whatever is going wrong with your marriage because you're worried about your health test results and only worry about your health because you're worried what happened to my marriage so you sort of split the grief. and it's almost like having two kids instead of one. you can't worry about that kid cribseling on the walls -- >> speaking of kids scribbling on the walls -- kathie lee. >> these segways are crazy. >> how did you survive that? >> first of all, that's why we have booze on the set. second of all, it's been quite an adventure. and it has been such a freeing experience for me, because i was so used to being buttoned up, from "dateline" and following scripts and rules and stuff. and obviously in this show,
